crimeaans who welcome them, ukraine is in a state of heighten d anxiety. whether the vote was for show, there's real ramifications on the ground, and it could be a slippery slope. these situations can get away from anybody, even somebody as adept at controlling powers like vladimir putin is. >> i want to get your thoughts on that. there is a concern that the government in ukraine is alienating people close to russia within the country. is there a lot of credibility and sympathy within ukraine to that? >> yes, the old guard always takes advantage of any slip-ups that the new guard makes, whether in ukraine or other countries that have gone through revolutions. what happened here is that the new government repealed a law allowing russian language to be the second official language. if ipp feweriated many -- infuriate many that look towards them for political guidance and help. people in kiev and the western part of the ukraine are looking to the west. there's is sense that they may have stepped too far. they have made the step. it's too late to step back from that. they are focussed on c
of economic package because ukraine is teetering on the edge of default, and the united states, the e.u., and the imf are working together to come up with a package, maybe as high as $15 billion. that's what the russians initially offered to president jankovich. that's what the protests began and toppled him. the second conversation, which i'm guessing is taking place as we speak, is one about a response to what has occurred. president obama said yesterday there will be costs, and it looked like russia is throwing down the gauntlet, is using military force, wants to try to separate crimea to stir up trouble, and so the u.s. and the e.u. will be talking about what can we do to say to russia that this is unacceptable? >> what are the u.s. options? what does president obama have? >> well, i would say there are three arrows in the quiver. the first kind of response would be diplomatic, and that would be to say we're going to perhaps withdraw ambassadors from europe and the united states, those that are in moscow. it could involve a cancellation of the g-8 summit, which is scheduled in soc

with the latest detail from the ukraine. reaction from marco rubio and secretary of state john kerry on the sunday morning talk shows today. here is what they had to say. >> if you are asking whether the u.s. should be taking military strikes against russian troops in the u.k. or -- in the ukraine or crimea, i don't think anyone is advocating for that. our nato alliance needs to be reinvigorated. it's an important alliance. the ukraine and poland are part of that alliance and we need to provide assurance of the importance of this alliance and i think we should revisit the missile defense shield we talked about so often. beyond that, as part of strengthening and stabilizing the government in kiev so they can transition to stability down the road, part of that should be strengthening their defense capabilities. athink the threat is long-term one they are facing. >> let me make it clear -- resident putin is not operating from a place of strength here. janik overage was his supported president. was out despite his support. president putin is using force in a completely inappropriate invite the would o
those commitment, and i think it's time for united states and britain to act to show support for ukraine. >> how so? where is the leverage? is there any leverage for the u.s. to use here? what kind of tools do we have? >> this is one of thele cha le a challenges. my guess is there's not serious interest in the west and military action going to the world in crimea. there do seem to be a number of political groups the west could take that would be designed to publish and isolate politically the russians. for example it would make stones go to the u.n. security council and put forward a resolution condemning russia and calling for russia to stop. russia would violate that and be isolated to veto to block that. i think we got to go beyond the notion of telling the russians if they don't stop, there would be no g-8 summit in sochi. if you don't stop, we'll go back to the g-7. this is a group of industrialized democracies. russia has long not been a democracy. it's time for the other seven to stop giving russia a pass on that. and they make it as a pent for this action. >> so big picture here,
to the border with ukraine between poland and ukraine, but it's quite clear that europe and the united states no matter how much you know, kerry mentioned that they are so united, there is really nothing more than economic pressure. now, that could actually -- >> you think the military is pleatly off thcompletely off th? >> actual movement of nato troops, i don't think this situation warrants that. but they are talking about economic sanctions and that actually could, in the longer term, prove pretty harmful to mr. putin, because after all, he is supported by an elite of russians who are very interested in close ties with the west. they don't want to get on black lists and not be able to have exchange. they want western investments. so, yeah, i think the economic lever is something that can be used. >> but it's interesting that you both think that the economic 11 and diplomacy respectively are such powerful tools here. earlier andrÉ you said that your colleagues in washington said this issue was as big as iraq. so why should it then warrant a different response? >> we saw what happened there
community on edge since president putin got parliament's okay to send troops into ukraine. right now nato ambassadors are meeting on the crisis here in the u.s. secretary of state john kerry has strong words. >> it's an incredible act of aggression. it is really a stunning, willful choice by president putin to invade another country. >> he called it an invasion. now, the talks shift to how to calm everything down before it escalates even more. we have live coverage around the world. michelle kosinski is live at the white house. mcclove lynn and ian lee live in ukraine's capital city, kiev. this hour the white house trying to add to pressure on russia. president obama reaching out to allies by phone one day after he spent 90 minutes on the phone with the russian president vladimir putin. u.s. correspondent michelle kosinski joins us now. michigan, the white house, what is the mood? what are they saying? >> it has been a busy weekend. president obama has been actively working on this today. he's been briefed by his security team. as you mentioned, later on he'll take calls with allies. the
